For lawyers in private practice, corporate counsel, businesses, organizations, and government, we have a powerful subscriber edition built around our fully explorable law practice problem solving environment and intellectual capital system, Laugment.TM

It's an advanced lawyer augmentation system.

Laugment provides advanced, easy-to-use law practice thinking architecture via your desktop or handheld device browser.

As of November 2018, Laugment knew 336,000 words and phrases. Because they are interconnected by 1,418,000 smart relationships, Laugment functions as an intellectual network extending your own mind. It also serves as a dynamic semantically-powered gateway to the best of the larger legal Web. If you don't have scores of dedicated knowledge management lawyers working on your behalf -- or, frankly, even if you do -- you need Laugment.

As a lawyer, you need an advanced lawyer-built law practice knowledge assistant / electronic mentor in myriad ways in your daily practice. But until Laugment came on the scene, the Legal Web had no semantic "brain" to make it more useful to practicing lawyers. The empty search box can't do what Laugment can do - make your most valuable asset -- your legal mind -- sharper, quicker, and more creative than ever. How? By functioning as an "intellectual prosthesis" magnifying your law practice mind through years of law practice modeling and legal transactive memory effects. Here's what others have said.

If you're a client, if you hire outside counsel, let's talk about how we can mutually support your law firms' step up to 21st century-style law practice.

Call us or ask us to call you.

Disclaimer: Laugment is not intended to substitute for a lawyer but rather to magnify the powers of smart people and improve the lawyering process.

(St. Paul, MN)--Governor Jesse Ventura today announced the appointment of David Minge to the Minnesota Court of Appeals.

Minge is a scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington, D.C., a fellow in the W.W. Kellogg Foundation Food and Society Policy Program and a lecturer at the University of Minnesota, Morris.  He was a member of the United States House of Representatives from Minnesota's Second Congressional District from 1993 to 2001, an attorney with the Nelson, Oyen, Torvik, Minge and Gilbertson law firm in Montevideo from 1977 through 1992, a professor at the University of Wyoming College of Law in Laramie from 1970 to 1977 and an attorney with the Faegre and Benson law firm in Minneapolis from 1967 to 1970.  Minge earned his juris doctorate degree from the University of Chicago Law School in 1967 and his bachelor of arts degree magna cum laude from St. Olaf College in Northfield in 1964.

"Congressman Minge is a man of great intellect and integrity who demonstrated his collegiality as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives," Governor Ventura said.  "But he is not just a politician; he is a lawyer who has practiced in the city as well as the country.  He has also taught law.  He is ideally suited to be a judge on the Minnesota Court of Appeals."

Minge was co-founder and chair of the Agricultural Law Section of the Minnesota State Bar Association, a board member and chair of Western Minnesota Legal Services, and a participant in the Volunteer Attorney Program.  He also served on the Montevideo School Board, the Montevideo Chamber of Commerce Board, the Montevideo Community Development Board, and was co-founder and a member of Clean Up the River Environment (CURE) Board.

Minge, 59, was born in Clarkfield and lives in Montevideo with his wife, Karen.  They have two sons, Erik, 34, and Olaf, 31.  Minge replaces the Honorable Gary Crippen, who will retire as a judge of the Court of Appeals on April 2, 2002.

The Minnesota Court of Appeals has jurisdiction of appeals from all final decisions of trial courts other than conciliation courts except for appeals in certain election contests, convictions of murder in the first degree and appeals from the Workers' Compensation Court of Appeals and the Tax Court.  The Court of Appeals consists of 16 judges: eight at-large seats and eight seats designated for each of the state's congressional districts.
